Artful Medicine for Corinna Borden

Spring Pink Flowers, Mixed Medium on Paper, 2008

A dear high school friend, Corinna Borden is currently in treatment for cancer.  Being the incredible brave soul that she is, she has asked for help and support.  I want to help her afford her treatment by turning this painting in to medicine.  I have been thinking about this for quite a while and chose this painting, Spring Pink Flowers which speaks to me of her.  She is beautiful, generous of spirit, joyful and vibrantly full of life similar to the bursting flowers of spring and early summer.   She is an avid gardener, writer, farmer, and advocate of miracles.  She laughs loudly and easily, she radiates happiness.  Her life is precious.

I believe art is inspired by the beauty of life and inspires our personal discovery of beauty in our lives.  I believe generosity is prosperity.  I believe that it is our job to follow our hearts desire.  I believe vulnerability is courage.  I believe we are of service by being authentic.  Along with all these beliefs I believe we can follow our hearts today and help one another by giving; giving our gifts, sharing goodwill, giving financially, giving our hearts, giving our time.  I also believe that should include giving all those things to ourselves too.
